So after some research and much frustration I've found myself with a green pool, 100 dollar test kit and on this forum for help.
I've had my pool for 3 years now and had no luck keeping it clear. I've been using the 3 inch triclor tabs from my local pool store along with their liquid chlorine to shock the pool once a week.
My pool is a 33k gallon in ground vinyl pool with an s240 Hayward sand filter. It gets full sun here in ny and sits sound 85 ddegrees all season.
I purchased a k2006c test kit which I used today and my readings were such.
Ph of 7.8
Fc 0 (I gave up for the year so this is why).
I was about to give up and close it green for the winter until I found this forum and the test kit so I figure it's my last beacon if light.
I currently have 4 gallons of 12.5% bleach and about 15 lbs of pucks left. I tried the calculator for how much bleach I should add and I think it was 4 to get me to fc of 15 but I imagine I need more to maintain that. And do I keep using the triclor pucks?
Can anyone give some advice? Thanks!
